Lydia, Music student, Class of 2021

You gave me the confidence to do what I love

Music is my way of communicating, expressing, reflecting and connecting. It has always been a huge part of my family's life, and I was very much influenced by that. I started playing the piano at the age of seven, and I fell in love with it. The piano has allowed me to branch out into other instruments, such as guitar, violin and voice.

I never expected to study music at the university level until I got accepted to Laurier. I always wanted to, but I did not think I was qualified or talented enough. Receiving the Rev. Erich Schultz Music Award means so much to me because it shows that others recognize my potential, work ethic, talents and passion for learning and growing.

I was able to use the award to help pay my tuition for a term, and I am so grateful for that. Receiving this award is an encouragement and affirmation, and it motivates me to keep going and to always try my best in all that I do.
